The importance to study chess endgames

In these days I am following the Bratto International Chess Tournament. Yesterday I saw this endgame played between two Class A players (Fide rating between 1800 & 2000). White to move. 

White played 1.h4?? [1.h3 draws h4 2.Kd4 Kd6 =] Black replied1...gxh4??= [Black would have won with 1...Kf6!!+-] 2.Kxf4 draws

Another reminder of the importance to study chess endgames!
